The Master of Science in Computer and Information Systems (MSCIS) offered by the Computer Science and MIS departments combines technology and business skills, enabling students to apply their experiences to further their professional goals.
The current UW-Parkside catalog contains detailed information about the CIS program.
The MSCIS program is right for you if: you have little or no background in CS or MIS and you wish to gain credentials as a computer and information systems professional, or you have a degree in CIS or MIS and you wish to advance yourself technically and professionally. The MSCIS program is entirely course-based -- you will not be required to do a thesis or research project, but you will write a document suitable for publication.
If you have little or no background in CS or MIS, you will complete a set of prerequisite courses appropriate to your preparation. These courses cover calculus, programming, and data structures. The number of courses required -- up to three -- will depend on your previous coursework and experience. Please contact the Graduate Dean to discuss your situation.

At the discretion of the program faculty, students with minor deficiencies in items 1 and 2 may be conditionally accepted into the MSCIS program if they can otherwise demonstrate significant potential for success.
